Ahhh *so many hugs* I'm sorry your interview didn't go as well as you wanted it to. But it doesn't sound like it went badly!! Even if you did come off as a little distant, it sounds like you were REALLY well prepared, and I think it's actually pretty good if he liked one of your ideas! Plus even if he shot down the other two, the fact that you already had all those ideas should count for something...I hope you get in!! Tell me what happens!
Lol, your math teachers sound pretty awesome. But you've only ever had store pie?? This is why we need to meet in real life: I COULD TOTALLY BE YOUR BAKING FRIEND, I BAKE FOOD ALL THE TIME (lolll, to be honest, my sister actually bakes a lot more often then me, but we do bake things together quite a bit!)
Haha, I have to admit that for a second I saw the words "Amaranta and Rebecca" and got really confused and couldn't figure out what you were talking about. Despite my love for that book, remembering all the characters and keeping them straight always makes my head spin. Yesss, I cried too at the end a little, and yeah, that was probably one of the things that amazed me the most; how such a long, convoluted, and kinda rambling story wrapped up so nicely and tied together in the end. But I get not being in the mood for analyzing things. I think I'm kind of there myself right now, especially with poetry. But on the other hand, I'd just love to get my lit class of last semester back right now, and we did nothing but analyze everything in there, so. Mmph. Idk. Lol, a bunch of us from that class surprised our teacher by bursting into her classroom with food after school on the last day before spring break and had a reunion. 'Twas beautiful. :')
Speaking of spring break, mine ended last week, sigh times a million. But that means yours starts soon, right? Are you going to be doing anything fun?
Yay about your English paper!! Ahaha, this march of papers IS neverending, so true...but the econ paper wasn't as bad as I thought it would be at the beginning of the year when they told us we had to write 15-25 pages. I was like, I can't do this lol, but we did it so slowly, it just...got done. Which is NOT to say that my paper was any kind of decent quality writing, as that was my slacker class of this year (it's the required class for all seniors at my school, and therefore their standards do not seem awfully high...). In fact, my paper was pretty awful, but it's over now, and we'll see what happens with that.
Back to college...aww, I'm glad he got into college (lol, I'd never considered the alternative as a possibility though, he definitely sounded like someone who'd GET INTO COLLEGE ), but I get his disappointment at it not being any of the ones he was really hoping for, and I'm sorry. That's basically what happened to me, too...though I mean, I feel bad for feeling bad, because the college I got into IS perfectly amazing and lovely, but, just...ugh. I hate admitting that I'm disappointed, because I probably shouldn't be, but...I kinda am? I've mostly gotten over it now though. However, I must just inform you that WAITLISTS ARE PAIN, AND TORTURE, AND SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED. Lolll, ugh, I really wasn't expecting this. I mean, I think I knew they were a thing, but I guess I just didn't know they were so...common? I got waitlisted by almost half the schools I didn't get into, which just seems kind of ridiculous, because bleh, so much limbo. I didn't accept all of them, and I'm only kind of hung up on one really (U. something- Katie removed- sorry-, because--well, it's the one I was talking about earlier, though the stats are horrible and I really shouldn't be). I also took P and C's, but asdfkj;l, I'm not actually thinking about them much because getting off the waitlist is just not a thing that's going to happen. So on that note, I've almost definitely decided where I'm going to go! Wooh! Am I allowed to say though? I kind of thought I was, because I feel like I've seen other Stackers mention where they go to college, but it seems kind of personal to me, so...? Can I, Katie?
Anyway, I think I've been rambling about college quite enough now--sorry about that, it's just been what's been on everyone around me's minds lately? (sigh, I'm actually really tired of all its associated stress/drama at this point...so many disappointed people I know :'( ) Oh! Though I wanted to ask you: is your high school super competitive? Because I've heard NY schools are, and I'm just kinda curious...I have extended family who lives there, and whenever they talk about it, it sounds scary cutthroat compared to the rather laidback midwest, lol. (Sidenote: I feel like that might have sounded kind of offensive to New York? IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE, I'M SURE THERE ARE WONDERFUL SCHOOLS THERE, just...yeah )
ONTO THE BOOKS! Haha, this is going to sound tangential, but remember when we first started this thread? Lol, I was reading some of the oldest posts...I can't believe they were almost two years ago now! :') Anywaaay: THIS IS RELATED TO BOOKS, I PROMISE because remember how you were reading Cinder back then? Well, I saw it at the library recently and picked it up, and it just so happens to be what I'm reading right now! I'm not very far in yet...but it's pretty gripping!
(In a complete non-sequitur) what kind of music have you been listening to lately? I've just gotten off a re-obsession with the Les Mis soundtrack, and a fairly new kind-of-obsession with the Hamilton soundtrack (lots of show tunes lol), and I would love some new suggestions!
(In another complete non-sequitur--lol, on second thought, I'm not sure why I'm pointing these ones out, considering my posts are always full of them) how's your life going? <3
